Can't wait to see Iceman! I hope he'll appear in ice form more than once! Surprisingly he's actually my favorite character from this movie series. And Ice slides/ice spikes please!

I love Ashmore in the role and I thought he had MAD chemistry with Page. Will be interesting how they play them out in the DOFP. They definitely need to keep them together.

They should still be friends but I hope they will not continue that love-triangle storyarc again. I don't think Iceman was ever attracted to Shadowcat.

I didn't like the love triangle aspect either. Bobby wasn't such a great fit for Rogue and I was never a fan of their pairing. I did however like Page & Ashmore's chemistry through The Last Stand, it was one of the very few things I thought they did get right in the film.

If anything Rogue should have dumped Bobby and went after Colossus.
 
Hope Ashmore gets into shape in the next few months. :p

Or they should just introduce Gambit to Rogue. But I don't think there is enough room for the movie to do this love-triangle and these new pairings.

I doubt they will bring in Gambit after the W: O fiasco. Plus, Bryan has never been a fan of the character. If they do you can expect a completely revamped type of Gambit that he maybe unrecognizable to comic fans.

I know Singer, Hayter, DeSanto and Doner Shuler have mentioned that Gambit's role is filled by Wolverine and Cyclops.

This film is so packed that I doubt there will be anytime for romance. lol
 
one interesting thing I find on Shawn now is that he has cut his hair lately, so once he gets the iceform, he will look really close to comic Iceman, with the head looking like a ball.

no joke, I think it will look really cool and closer to the comics.

If Singer gives us at least one iceslide on the film....... man, it would be reaaaaaaaaaally cool, after ALL these years.

Agreed. I'm not expecting anything in terms of romance or love triangles, especially among the original cast. If there's any relationship we've heard of possibly being explored it's the one between Hoult and Lawrence.

Yes plus his hair in X3 didn't look so good in ice-form.
 
I'd like to see this covered in ice:

But a lot of triangle was cut from final cut of last Stand.

If rogue and Iceman are Introduced as prisoners there may be moments between them.

It's time to see singer's version Iceman in Iceform.
 
I want to see less man and more ice in this film :woot:
 
I actually didn't want Shawn back because I never liked him as Iceman (mostly due to Singer's really eye-rolling coming-out subplot). But if he's going to be in it, I want the AOA version of Iceman that couldn't turn back to human form. So instead of happy-go-lucky Bobby, he was more like dark/jokester/angry Bobby.
 
I liked the coming out sub-plot. Great way of using the outcast theme of mutanthood.
 
I just want to see him do some ice sliding...

fingers crossed Singer and crew give us the very first iceslide of the franchise!

I have hope. They cant miss such a great opportunity, right? This is their BIG event movie, they should play ALL their cards

God that looked terrible. Looks like the same effect they used on Johnny Storm in F4.

And I'm very glad that Bobby Drake's moment to shine; all the build up that resulted in a long journey from being with the X-Men into BEING an X-Men led to... head butting Pyro.

I hate that movie.
 
I thought the same when I watched the ice effect on X3, its clearly the same, just with blue.

hopefully Singer gives a little different take, but not sooo different that it will become a totally different Iceman
 
Wow but that looks pretty good, the Human Torch...I mean...not TOO bad...
 
They've done ice people in CG before so they should be able to ramp their game up now.
 
That will never happen simply because of budget concerns.


I thought it was good, it looked they really iced him up.

If they don't have to budget for Colossus, it could happen. The X-men movies never seem to have enough money for CGI characters haha.

Spend some money, FOX!!!
